However, a major retailer has now come out to say that they don’t expect the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X to be delayed by the coronavirus.
As revealed in a post by GamesIndustry.Biz, the CEO of GameStop George Sherman has said the retailer is not expecting any next-gen delays.
During a post-earnings call conference Sherman said there was no indication COVID-19 would impact the year-end release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Sherman also said that at the moment the impact of the coronavirus on product deliveries of all kinds has been “minimal”.
